Green Entrepreneurship Skills for NEET (=Not in Education, Employment or Training) Persons
The project GENTe aims to provide alternative ways of learning to a broad range of young adults and help them develop their knowledge, skills and capabilities in order to be benefited from opportunities for employability and entrepreneurship. The educational activities of GENTe will offer the participants the opportunity to explore new forms of employability and motivate them to either join existing small and medium-sized enterprises or, ideally, put their own ideas into practice and start their own small, green, business. Furthermore, it is expected that all participants involved in the project will become more aware in terms of environmental issues and put green entrepreneurship into practice, growing a green mentality of learning and working in the EU. What is more, it is expected that the participants will benefit from the project by improving their digital literacy and creating eco-friendly, green and sustainable businesses.
The main objectives of the project are the following:
- Contributing to the EU’s strategies for green entrepreneurship by offering the opportunity to a broad range of people, especially women, to be involved and utilize their potential.
- Promoting green growth and becoming part of developing a resource-efficient, circular economy where nothing is wasted.
- Developing innovative educational tools that will facilitate the development of new and innovative digital skills among NEET people in Europe.
The core participants of the GENTe project will be:
- NEET individuals, especially women
- SMEs (=Small and Medium Enterprises), start-ups, local entrepreneurs etc.
- Wider stakeholders in the field of adult learning, such as training centers, as well as municipalities, chambers of commerce, trade union etc., at a local, regional, national and European level who are also taken into consideration as participants in some project activities.
